A Wild Confluence
The introduction establishes the terms of reference for the book, by first explaining the context of the Wild Rivers Act and land rights in Australia before then examining the history of concepts of ‘the wild’ and wilderness. As this shows, ‘the wild’ has long been a concept open to both positive and negative evaluations, evaluations that have frequently flipped in the service of power and government. The introduction closes with a summary of the book’s arguments and of the chapters that follow.
